Description

Barling Manor is an exquisite example of a Queen Anne style property. The Manor is the work of renowned architects and interior designers, Thorp Design. Their brief was to design and build a luxurious Queen Anne style property undergoing only the most authentic material and artisan craftsmanship.

Every aspect and detail of the building was carefully considered, from the traditional Flemish bond brickwork to the handmade bespoke kitchen.

The house combines the warmth and character of its classic design with the contemporary features one would expect in a house of this quality.

Throughout the property are galleried halls and high ceilings, lined with solid oak doors and floors, featuring crafted walnut and maple joinery and fittings. It also has the added feature of air conditioning and underfloor heating, as well as double-glazed hardwood sash windows.

The property has up to nine bedrooms plus a staff residence, all of which stand on two acres of landscaped gardens with an additional one acre available separately. The grounds also feature a 9m swimming pool with pool house and a hard court tennis court.

Accommodation
The accommodation is approached under a pillared portico into a magnificent reception hall featuring a stone cantilever staircase rising to a galleried landing which overlooks the hall. The area is split level and at the rear provides for an informal sitting room with a deep glazed bay overlooking the gardens and grounds. The substantial accommodation flows easily and there is a harmony as the colours and textures of wall coverings complement one another as you pass from room to room. The house lends itself to both formal entertaining and relaxed family living on a grand scale with a welcoming ambience across versatile spaces. Some of the principal features include a highly appointed kitchen finished with ivory coloured gloss-fronted units under contrasting Corian working surfaces including a variety of integrated appliances. Adjoining is an attractive breakfast room with a "hole in the wall" fireplace and circular fitted breakfast table and occasional seating. For more formal entertaining the dining room extends to 26 ft overlooking both the gardens and the front of the house. Overlooking the gardens is a bar room, a lovely area for entertaining including a fitted wet bar and a sitting room, next to the kitchen, both of which have double doors opening onto a garden terrace, perfect for entertaining.

On the first floor are five well appointed bedrooms set around a magnificent galleried landing. The master bedroom is particularly spacious with superb views over the gardens and boasts a particularly fine en suite bathroom and en suite dressing room. All of the bathrooms have been individually designed with attention to detail and high quality fittings. On the second floor are two en suite bedrooms, an upper lounge and a fantastic room. Above the garaging on the first floor is a large guest flat with kitchen and bathroom. From the hall a door descends into an extensive basement area comprising two large rooms together with a plant room.

Outside
The house occupies a mature plot of about 2 acres which has been professionally landscaped to provide all-year colour and interest. The front gardens are approached over a broad drive to an electric gated entrance which opens into a substantial gravelled parking area in front of the house and treble garage. Behind the house an expanse of lawns are interwoven with heavily planted island beds, box hedging and a bank of mature trees on all boundaries. Immediately behind the house is a substantial terrace ideal for al fresco dining which links to an in-ground swimming pool with adjoining pool house. A pathway meanders through the grounds to an enclosed hard-surface tennis court towards the rear boundary.

Services
All mains services.
